My H1B Employment Petition (USCIS Form I-797) demonstrates a work begin date. How early would I be able to apply for a H1B visa at the Consulate?

You can apply for a H1B visa up to 90 days before the request to begin date recorded on the
shape I-797, Notice of Action. However, you cannot enter the US earlier than 10 days prior to the
start date listed on the I-797 unless you are already working on an H1B visa for the same
petitioner.
